Raging Bull II

Dear Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino, Natasha Henstridge and Penelope Ann Miller—you should know better. Martin Scorsese's "Raging Bull" is without question a masterpiece and one of his finest accomplishments, so why participate in a movie that doesn't have his blessing and had MGM successfully sue the filmmakers, forcing them to change the name from "Raging Bull II" (you gotta at least admire the hubris) to "The Bronx Bull"? Anyway, the first trailer is here, and yes, it looks exactly as terrible as you thought.

William Forsythe leads the movie playing Jake La Motta, and you might recall that he's already gone on record saying that this movie will improve on the Scorsese original. “I understand that because it's such an iconic, beautiful and amazing first film — one of the great films maybe of all time," he said a couple years back about the push back against the sequel. "But our story has a lot more heart and I think it's a beautiful depiction of who Jake really is.” We're not sure if "more heart" means "lower budget," because man, this thing looks cheap, and not particularly well acted either. Clearly Martin Guigui is no Martin Scorsese.

No word yet on a release date. Watch the trailer below. [via Live For Films]

    Requesting a gif of Paul Sorvino jiggling and screaming "NEVER NEVER NEVER!!!"

    Wow. Reminds me of the Cannon films from the late 80s.
